The vikings are back!


New movement in Norway. The vikings are back!!
Through the last years there has been a growing interest for the old vikings. Everything is coming back, bit by bit, brought by committed people who are eager to learn from the ancestors.
They try to make everything authentic: The houses, the vessels, clothes, jewellry, tools, handcraft, food and beverage, not to mention the viking weapons and games, ceremonies and rituals.
But life is more easy for modern vikings. There is less pain and much more fun for us. This christmas I met my Viking Family for the first time, for the Christmas offerings. And in these sturdy persons I found wonderful spiritual personalities. A new door opened for me and I am so thankful that my friend Annhja brought me there.

And a bit of history: Vikings came even to Athens, Greece (!)where they wrote a runic inscription on the Piraeus Lion -beautiful sculpture later seized as plunder by the Venetians. On one side they wrote 'Asmund cut these runes with Asgeir and Thorleif, Thord and Ivar, at the request of Harold the Tall, though the Greeks considered about and forbade it.' On the other side they wrote 'Hakon with Ulf and Asmund conquered this port. These men and Harold Hafi imposed a heavy fine on account of the revolt of the Greek people. Dalk is detained captive in far lands. Egil is gone on an expedition with Ragnar into Romania and Armenia.' Impressive, ha?

Nadiyya!!! I would LOVE for you to teach me more about the Vikings. MVP is Norwegian and shows his sturdy Viking side from time to time. I think it would help us to understand his depths more.
